it there. [laughter] i'm learning from president obama to place blame on your predecessor. [laughter] i didn't know that as mayor. he became parollized which is tragic. he brought a lawsuit against new york city, and he recovered $70 million from the jury. now, let me tell you the rest of the facts. the reason he was running, he was running out of a subway station. the reason he was running out of the subway station is he just hit a man over the head, stole his wallet, and ran away, and the police were chasing him n. in the course of being chased by the police, he tripped and became paralyzed. he was sentenced to jail for 20 years. he was obviously the richest 1% in prison. we finally got that reduced after battling in the court of appeals to $4 million, still making him the richest prisoner. this is how absurd our legal system is in new york. because of the hold that the trial lawyers have on the democrats in our state legislature and a few selected republicans, we can't do the tort reform that you've been able to accomplish in many states. there's offices in texas, i see wonderful thi
